As a full-service MRF labor and operational support company, many times Leadpoint comes in after a facility has tried to use temp labor without success. We work directly with our customers to ensure alignment on safety BEFORE starting operations. We have our own highly-developed safety team, programs and training to ensure compliance and reduce risk for our employees and our customers.
Leadpoint’s safety team works closely with industry leaders to establish, update and improve waste and recycling safety standards. We are members of NWRA and SWANA, and our vice president of safety and compliance is on the ANSI Z245 committee that establishes safety and operational standards for the entire industry.
We work with our customers to implement safety programs that, in many cases, exceed minimum government standards and regulations. Through our Operations Support as a Service offering, we assist our onsite work teams and take on special projects like safety audits, creation of safety programs, and general safety consulting.
Leadpoint works with our customers to ensure that we manage all factors that impact cost, including PPE inventory and proper use of that equipment. We also work to ensure that all employees have the latest PPE for the recycling environment. This has proven to reduce injuries in the recycling environment.
Our ability to manage PPE inventory for our customers is one more way we can reduce chaos for the plant manager and reduce PPE expected costs.
Through our on-site management structure, Leadpoint manages our own OSHA compliance programs and maintains OSHA recordkeeping for our employees. We have created a Safety Management System (SMS) to help ensure compliance and drive safety. The Leadpoint SMS includes:
In addition to our compliance programs, we have several safety initiatives that foster a safe workplace. These include:
Our LiveSafe philosophy connects each employee with safety on a personal level and creates a safer environment for all. The LifeSafe principles are:
